I just bought a new laptop with a really good audio system hooked up with a subwoofer. On youtube, I was listening to a lot of Metallica songs that are remastered in 1080p, and I must say I am really impressed with the quality. For one thing, you can actually hear the duo vocals and such, and the bass is rarely drowned. My compliants about it is when I listen to Metallica songs from "And Justice For All", the lack of bass really exposes the song. On the other hand, when I listen to some of the Metallica songs from RTL, you can kind of tell Cliff Burton wasn't really tight, but I think it could be more of Lars fault if anything.

Does anyone have good experiences listening to HD Audio?

1080p is video resolution, not an audio measurement, surely?

I thought 1080p meant that there was 1080 pixels?


Well, I am learning about resolution quality, since I have a 720p monitor. I think audio is also converted along with the quality of the video.

1080p is 1080 progressive scan, as oppose to 1080i(interlaced), meaining there are 1080 lines of pixels.
I think.

It isn't. Audio and Video are two seperate things. The reason stuff like Blu-Ray has better audio is because they have more storage to put higher quality audio on, not because the res. is higher.

Alright, my mistake then. Again, I am just learning about resolution quality. Is the audio alone in a different format than say...mp3?

CD Audio is in .WAV format. About 1400kbps (Much higher quality than MP3). If you rip it to your PC it will be the same quality as any other music though...

I really don't see the point in the video of having high quality video and then just one picture the whole way through.

Alright, that kind of solves my confusion then. I never understood why there are youtube videos that post things like "<insert song> in 1080p".

It's just in higher resolution
Must have been imaging the 'better sound quality'

1080p is a screen resolution you idiot.



It wasn't that funny to me until i read this.

Actually, I am aware of the video being a picture. I just wanted to discuss the audio quality of the video.

I hear you. It's an easy mistake to make man. Just see how the HD button is selected? It puts the video into a higher definition, but it also increases the audio quality. So basically you're hearing a better audio signal or w/e cause of your new sound system and it being in HD format. If you uncheck that HD button you'll hear the difference.

Edit: Well, in most cases you'll hear the difference. I think there is only a slight difference in this case, but in a lot of youtubes of songs the audio quality increases dramatically when you click on HD.

Heres a good example. I think that link takes you to the non-HD version, if you just click on HD you can hear the audio difference.

Yeah, p stands for progressive as opposed to interlaced. GJ TS.
